This west coast style ale is brewed with a shapely malt body and enough hops to keep her feisty. Amber’s Hot Friend will never leave you with any bitter feelings.

Draught in a flight at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color. Nose was pretty bready and dough, with some slight sourdough elements to it. Taste is slightly bitter and also somewhat doughy. It sat heavy and weird on my palate.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Draught at the brewery, 5.1% ABV
Cloudy amber color with creamy head. Minimal aroma of hops and caramel. The mouthfeel is very dry, a bit too weak, with some caramel, strong bitterness and a metallic aftertaste.
Nothing exciting.

less malt and more hops than other ambers ive had, its more like a solid pale. strong carbonation good head. great finish as the hops are present and bold but not aggressive

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2007
On Draught at the Washington Brewers Festival. Aroma is citrus hop blend forward with light sweet malt. Appearance is a hazy copper with an off-white head. Flavor is sweet malt forward with strong hop flora, more like an IPA. Beer has a medium/light body and strong carb texture mixed with the bittering. Overall, a very interesting beer, just too hoppy to be considered an amber.

Crit (3562) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007
Tap at fest : Cloudy amber, small beige head. Light piney hop/sweet malt nose. The flavor is mostly malt, it could certainly use more hops

2007 - Washington Brewers Festival – Kenmore WA
Amber in color with a thin head. This was great amber ale and a great way to end the festival for me. The beer had a deep flavor and the name was also very fun. Liked the mild malts that gave this beer a refreshing easy drinking ability. Good use of hops and a nice easy finish.
